Yesterday the London Guardian used its first seven pages to report on the massacre of 17 people by gunmen in France. This coverage was complemented on subsequent pages by an editorial and three substantial comment pieces.
At the same time as the carnage in France as many as 2,000 people were reported slaughtered by Boko Haram rebels at a town in Nigeria. This merited a half-page report tucked away on page 25 of the same edition.
